South India superstar Prithviraj Sukumaran has confirmed that he is still a part of Farah Khan’s ‘Happy New Year’ despite reports earlier that he had been dropped from the ambitious project.
Sukumaran made his Bollywood debut with ‘Aiyyaa’ last year and after that was seen in Yash Raj Films’ action thriller ‘Aurangzeb’.
The comedy, which also stars Shah Rukh Khan, goes on the floors in September. A leading actress is yet to be announced.
At the time of singing the film, Sukumaran said, “I am in a happy state right now as my performance in `Aurangzeb` was appreciated and people didn`t come out saying they saw a South Indian actor. Audience and critics felt I played my part well and this was a huge achievement.”
“Now for the first time in Bollywood, I will be seen in a comedy film `Happy New Year`. I am really looking forward to working in this film”, he added.
Sukumaran is currently shooting for a Malayalam movie in the UK.
